[Mono-dev] TimeZone and CurrentTimeZone

Hello everyone,

I'm getting an exception trying to send an object of type DateTime from
a Linux machine running Mono to a Windows one running .Net.  The 
exception is "Type System.CurrentTimeZone is not marked as 
Serializable."  System.TimeZone is supposedly serializable, but called 
System.TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone returns something that isn't serializable.

Interestingly enough, when I went in and marked the type as 
[Serializable] and rebuild mono, I get an error deserializing the 
DateTime object on Windows (it doesn't recognize the type of the 
CurrentTimeZone object).

What's the status of this class?  Is this currently an expected issue?

Thanks for any info,
